    Government forces have still not ended what the Free Syrian Army is calling Operation Damascus Volcano, which started five days ago in the Syrian capital.

    Opposition forces are continuing to fight the Syrian army in the heart of Damascus.

    Activists say the Syrian army has shelled areas where rebels have clashed with troops - in revenge for Wednesday's bomb attack that killed at least three top government figures.
